A Narrow Escape
Norris is always messing up: he steals from Georgia's lunches, he's an awful speller and, worst of all, he ruined Ms. Penfield's prize cactus. Really, though, he wants nothing more than to be liked. When a giant lobster is up for auction at the annual lobster festival, Norris's dad, the richest man in town, vows to be the highest bidder and make it a trophy. But Norris knows that won't win people's respect. Can Norris do the right thing for once?
A Narrow Escape is the second book in The Lobster Chronicles, a trilogy about how life changes for three boys in a small coastal town when a giant lobster is caught. Each book describes the same events through a different boy's eyes, making for three suspenseful, believable stories and an engrossing reading experience.
